91st Maui Fair

LHS band parade

It’s Maui County Fair time, again! Now simply called “Maui Fair”, the fair will always be known to me as the County Fair. The fair kicked off yesterday, Oct 3, 2013 with the fair parade showcasing a wide variety of organizations on Maui, and will continue until Sunday night (Oct 6, 2013). Taking place at the War Memorial soccer complex in Wailuku, it’s generally a lot of fun for kids, families, and those wanting yummy local food cooked up by local groups doing fundraisers.
